    This is kind of inspired by another thread about haunted houses. What song lyrics are so powerful that they move you?

    "Hurt." Written by Trent Reznor of 9 Inch Nails, but performed here by the incomparable Johnny Cash.

    I hurt myself today
    To see if I still feel
    I focus on the pain
    The only thing that's real
    The needle tears a hole
    The old familiar sting
    Try to kill it all away
    But I remember everything

    [Chorus:]
    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    I wear this crown of thorns
    Upon my liar's chair
    Full of broken thoughts
    I cannot repair
    Beneath the stains of time
    The feelings disappear
    You are someone else
    I am still right here

    [Chorus:]
    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    If I could start again
    A million miles away
    I would keep myself
    I would find a way

    This is what Trent Reznor said about hearing Johnny Cash perform this song.

    "I pop the video in, and wow. Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps. Wow. I felt like I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore. It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. Somehow that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning — different, but every bit as pure."

    Uhh,
    Hit them with a lil' ghetto gospel

    [Chorus: Elton John]
    Those who wish to follow me
    ( My ghetto gospel )
    I welcome with my hands
    And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold
    And peace to this young warrior without the sound of guns

    [2Pac]
    If I could recollect before my hood days
    I'd sit and reminisce, thinkin a bliss of the good days
    I stop and stare at the younger, my heart goes to'em
    They tested, it was stress that they under
    an' now a days, things changed
    Everyone's ashamed of the youth 'cause the truth looks strange
    And for me it's reversed, we left 'em a world thats cursed, and it hurts
    cause any day they'll push the button
    and all condemned like Malcom x and Bobby Hunton, die for nothin'
    Don't it make ya get teary, the world looks dreary
    but when you wipe your eyes, see it clearly
    theres no need for you to fear me
    if you take the time to hear me, maybe you can learn to cheer me
    it aint about black or white, 'cause we're human
    I hope we see the light before its ruined
    my ghetto gospel

    [Chorus: Elton John]
    Those who wish to follow me
    (Ghetto Gospel)
    I welcome with my hands
    And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold
    [Ghetto Gospel lyrics on http://www.elyricsworld.com]

    And peace to this young warrior without the sound of guns

    [2Pac]
    Tell me do you see that old lady, ain't it sad
    Living out a bags, but she's glad for the little things she has
    And over there there's a lady, crack got her crazy
    Guess she's givin' birth to a baby
    I don't trip and let it fade me, from out of the frying pan, we jump into another form of slavery.
    Even now i get discouraged
    Wonder if they take it all back would I still keep the courage?
    I refuse to be a role model
    I set goals, take control, drink out my own bottle (own bottle)
    I make mistakes, but learn from every one
    And when its said and done
    I bet this brotha be a better one

    If I upset you, don't stress
    Never forget, that God hasn't finished with me yet
    I feel his hand on my brain
    When I write rhymes, I go blind, and let the lord do his thang
    But am I less holy
    'cause I choose to puff a blunt and drink a beer with my homies
    Before we find world peace
    We gotta find peace in that war on the streets
    My ghetto gospel


    [Chorus: Elton John]
    Those who wish to follow me
    (Yeah, Ghetto Gospel)
    I welcome with my hands
    And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold
    And peace to this young warrior without the sound of guns

    Lord can you hear me speak!!
    To pay the price of bein' hellbound...

    RIP

    And- Im sure this is too slow for alot of people, but its deep to me

    Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
    My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
    Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep
    Then up the stairs he would carry me
    And I knew for sure I was loved
    If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
    I’d play a song that would never, ever end
    How I’d love, love, love
    To dance with my father again
    When I and my mother would disagree
    To get my way, I would run from her to him
    He’d make me laugh just to comfort me
    Then finally make me do just what my mama said
    Later that night when I was asleep
    He left a dollar under my sheet
    Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
    If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
    I’d play a song that would never, ever end
    ‘Cause I’d love, love, love
    To dance with my father again
    Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
    And I’d hear how my mother cried for him
    I pray for her even more than me
    I pray for her even more than me
    I know I’m praying for much too much
    But could you send back the only man she loved
    I know you don’t do it usually
    But dear Lord she’s dying
    To dance with my father again
    Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

    [youtube]sBiYBCoovEQ[/youtube]

    R.I.P

    And also the song i want played at my funeral.

    How do I say goodbye
    To what we had
    The good times that made us laugh
    Outweighed the bad
    I thought we'd get to see forever
    But forever's gone away
    It's so hard to say goodbye
    To yesterday

    I don't know where this road
    Is going to lead
    All I know is where we've been
    And what we've been through
    If we get to see tomorrow
    I hope it's worth all the wait
    It's so hard to say goodbye
    To yesterday

    And I'll take with me the memories
    To be my sunshine after the rain
    It's so hard to say goodbye
    To yesterday

    And I'll take with me the memories
    To be my sunshine after the rain
    It's so hard to say goodbye
    To yesterday

    It's cheesy, but I cried the first time I heard "Where Were You" by Alan Jackson. I was driving back from Christmas shopping and had to pull into a gas station parking lot when it came on.

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
    Out in the yard with your wife and children
    Working on some stage in LA
    Did you stand there in shock at the site of
    That black smoke rising against that blue sky
    Did you shout out in anger
    In fear for your neighbor
    Or did you just sit down and cry

    Did you weep for the children
    Who lost their dear loved ones
    And pray for the ones who don't know
    Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
    And sob for the ones left below

    Did you burst out in pride
    For the red white and blue
    The heroes who died just doing what they do
    Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
    And look at yourself to what really matters

    I'm just a singer of simple songs
    I'm not a real political man
    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
    And the greatest is love

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
    Teaching a class full of innocent children
    Driving down some cold interstate
    Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor
    In a crowded room did you feel alone
    Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
    Did you dust off that bible at home
    Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
    Close your eyes and not go to sleep
    Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
    Speak with some stranger on the street
    Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
    Go out and buy you a gun
    Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watching
    And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
    Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
    Stand in line and give your own blood
    Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
    Thank God you had somebody to love

    I'm just a singer of simple songs
    I'm not a real political man
    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
    And the greatest is love

    I'm just a singer of simple songs
    I'm not a real political man
    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
    And the greatest is love

    The greatest is love
    The greatest is love

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day ​

    Even if you don't like country music (as I know many of you don't) you have to recognize the power of these lyrics. Especially the line about "suicide." Incredible imagery.

    If you like the lyrics, give the song a listen. Two beautiful voices blend together to make a haunting song.

    Whiskey Lullaby

    She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
    She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
    We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
    But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
    Until the night

    1st Chorus
    He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
    And finally drank away her memory
    Life is short but this time it was bigger
    Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
    We found him with his face down in the pillow
    With a note that said I'll love her till I die
    And when we buried him beneath the willow
    The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

    (Sing lullaby)

    The rumors flew but nobody know how much she blamed herself
    For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
    She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
    But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
    Until the night

    2nd Chorus
    She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
    And finally drank away his memory
    Life is short but this time it was bigger
    Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
    We found her with her face down in the pillow
    Clinging to his picture for dear life
    We laid her next to him beneath the willow
    While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

    (Sing lullaby)

    The Lyric to the perfect country and western song!

    WELL, IT WAS ALL
    THAT I COULD DO TO KEEP FROM CRYING
    SOMETIMES IT SEEMED SO USELESS TO REMAIN
    BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN, DARLIN'
    YOU NEVER EVEN CALL ME BY MY NAME

    YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME WAYLON JENNINGS
    AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME CHARLIE PRIDE
    AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME MERLE HAGGARD/ANYMORE
    EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE ON MY FIGHTING SIDE

    CHORUS:
    AND I'LL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
    AND I NEVER MINDED STANDING IN THE RAIN
    BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN, DARLIN
    YOU NEVER EVEN CALLED ME BY MY NAME

    WELL, I'VE HEARD MY NAME
    A FEW TIMES IN YOUR PHONE BOOK
    AND I'VE SEEN IT ON SIGNS WHERE I'VE PLAYED
    BUT THE ONLY TIME I KNOW
    I'LL HEAR "DAVID ALLAN COE"
    IS WHEN JESUS HAS HIS FINAL JUDGMENT DAY

    REPEAT CHORUS

    RECITATION:
    WELL, A FRIEND OF MINE NAMED STEVE GOODMAN WROTE THAT SONG
    AND HE TOLD ME IT WAS THE PERFECT COUNTRY & WESTERN SONG
    I WROTE HIM BACK A LETTER AND I TOLD HIM IT WAS NOT THE PERFECT COUNTRY & WESTERN SONG BECAUSE HE HADN'T SAID ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT MAMA,
    OR TRAINS,
    OR TRUCKS,
    OR PRISON,
    OR GETTING DRUNK
    WELL HE SAT DOWN AND WROTE ANOTHER VERSE TO THE SONG
    AND HE SENT IT TO ME,
    AND AFTER READING IT,
    I REALIZED THAT MY FRIEND HAD WRITTEN THE PERFECT
    COUNTRY & WESTERN SONG
    AND I FELT OBLIGED TO INCLUDE IT ON THIS ALBUM
    THE LAST VERSE GOES LIKE THIS HERE:

    WELL, I WAS DRUNK THE DAY MY MOM GOT OUT OF PRISON
    AND I WENT TO PICK HER UP IN THE RAIN
    BUT BEFORE I COULD GET TO THE STATION IN MY PICKUP TRUCK
    SHE GOT RUNNED OVER BY A DAMNED OLD TRAIN

    CHORUS:
    AND I'LL HANG AROUND AS LONG AS YOU WILL LET ME
    AND I NEVER MINDED STANDING IN THE RAIN
    NO, And YOU DON'T HAVE TO CALL ME DARLIN, DARLIN
    YOU NEVER EVEN CALL ME
    WELL I WONDER WHY YOU DON'T CALL ME
    WHY DON'T YOU EVER CALL ME BY MY NAME

    Almost everything this guy writes is really deep. My current favorite artist, Jamey Johnson. Jerk your heart out of your chest and stomp on it.

    The High Cost of Living

    I was just a normal guy
    Life was just a nine to five
    With bills and pressure
    Piled up to the sky
    She never asked
    She knew I’d been
    Hangin’ with my wilder friends
    Looking for some other way to fly

    And three days straight was no big feat
    Could get by with no food or sleep
    And crazy was becoming my new norm

    I’d pass out on the bedroom floor
    And sleep right through the calm before the storm

    My life was just an old routine
    Every day the same damn thing
    I couldn’t even tell I was alive

    I tell you
    The high cost of livin’
    Ain’t nothing like the cost of livin’ high

    That southern Baptist parking lot
    Is where I’d go to smoke my pot
    Sit there in my pickup truck and pray
    Staring at that giant cross
    Just reminded me that I was lost
    And it just never seemed to point the way

    As soon as Jesus turned his back
    I find my way across the track
    Lookin’ just to score . . . another deal
    With my back against that damn eight ball
    I didn’t have to think or talk . . . or feel

    My life was just an old routine
    Every day the same damn thing
    I couldn’t even tell I was alive

    I tell you
    The high cost of livin’
    Ain’t nothing like the cost of livin’ high

    My whole life went through my head
    Layin’ in that motel bed
    Watchin’ as the cops kicked in the door

    I had a job and a piece of land
    My sweet wife was my best friend
    But I traded that for cocaine and a whore

    With my new found sobriety
    I’ve got the time to sit and think
    Of all the things I had . . . and threw away

    This prison is much colder than
    That one that I was locked up in just yesterday

    My life is just an old routine
    Every day the same damn thing
    Hell I can’t even tell if I’m alive

    I tell you
    The high cost of livin’
    Ain’t nothing like the cost of livin’ high

    I tell you
    The high cost of livin’
    Ain’t nothing like the cost of livin’ high

    This one by MercyMe gets to me. The video also is very good ... a montage of people holding up pictures of the loved ones that have passed away.




    I can only imagine
    What it will be like
    When I walk
    By your side

    I can only imagine
    What my eyes will see
    When your face
    Is before me
    I can only imagine

    [Chorus:]
    Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
    Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
    Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
    Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
    I can only imagine

    I can only imagine
    When that day comes
    And I find myself
    Standing in the Son

    I can only imagine
    When all I will do
    Is forever
    Forever worship You
    I can only imagine

    [Chorus]

    I can only imagine [x2]

    I can only imagine
    When all I will do
    Is forever, forever worship you

    "God Said No", by Dan Bern

    I met God On the edge of town
    Where the wind meets the stillness
    Where the darkness meets the light
    Where the ocean meets the sky
    Where the desert meets the rain
    Where the earth meets the heavens
    On the edge of town I met God

    I asked God
    Do one thing for me
    Send me back in time
    Send me to Seattle
    Let me go
    Find Kurt Cobain
    Take away his gun
    Take away his bullets
    Talk to him
    Make him wanna live
    Tell him how we love him
    Help him see his glory
    God Said No
    If I sent you back
    If you really found him
    You would only ask him
    If he could
    Help you get a deal
    If he knows a lawyer
    If he can help you
    God Said No

    I asked God
    Do one thing for me
    Send me back in time
    Send me to Berlin
    Let me find
    The one they call Hitler
    I will stalk him
    I will bring him down
    I will bring along
    A powerful gun
    Loaded with bullets
    Obliterate his memory
    God Said No
    If I sent you back
    You would get caught up
    In theory and discussion
    You would let your fears
    Delay and distract you
    You would make friends
    You would take a lover
    God Said No

    I asked God
    Do one thing for me
    Send me back in time
    Send me to Jerusalem
    Let me go
    Let me go find Jesus
    Let me save his life
    As they try to kill him
    Let me take him down
    Down from the cross
    Take the iron from his body
    Try to heal his wounds
    God Said No
    If I let you go
    If you really found him
    Walking with the cross
    You would stare
    Your tongue no longer working
    Eyes no longer seeing
    Ears no longer hearing
    God said Time
    Time belongs to me
    Time's my secret weapon
    My final advantage
    God turned away
    From the edge of town
    I knew I was beaten
    And that now was all I had
    God Said No

    Goodnight My Angel - Billy Joel

    Goodnight, my angel
    Time to close your eyes
    And save these questions for another day
    I think I know what you've been asking me
    I think you know what I've been trying to say
    I promised I would never leave you
    And you should always know
    Wherever you may go
    No matter where you are
    I never will be far away

    Goodnight, my angel
    Now it's time to sleep
    And still so many things I want to say
    Remember all the songs you sang for me
    When we went sailing on an emerald bay
    And like a boat out on the ocean
    I'm rocking you to sleep
    The water's dark and deep
    Inside this ancient heart
    You'll always be a part of me

    Goodnight, my angel
    Now it's time to dream
    And dream how wonderful your life will be
    Someday your child may cry
    And if you sing this lullabye
    Then in your heart
    There will always be a part of me

    Someday we'll all be gone
    But lullabyes go on and on...
    They never die
    That's how you
    And I
    Will be

    How Great Thou Art.

    I won't post it because it is religious in context. Carrie Underwood's version of it is amazing. I highly recommend it for anyone who is curious.

    Brings a tear to my eye. :D

    I shot the sheriff
    But I didn't shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
    I shot the sheriff
    But I didn't shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.)
    Yeah! All around in my home town,
    They're tryin' to track me down;
    They say they want to bring me in guilty
    For the killing of a deputy,
    For the life of a deputy.
    But I say:

    Oh, now, now. Oh!
    (I shot the sheriff.) - the sheriff.
    (But I swear it was in selfdefence.)
    Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
    I say: I shot the sheriff - Oh, Lord! -
    (And they say it is a capital offence.)
    Yeah! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!

    Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
    For what, I don't know:
    Every time I plant a seed,
    He said kill it before it grow -
    He said kill them before they grow.
    And so:

    Read it in the news:
    (I shot the sheriff.) Oh, Lord!
    (But I swear it was in self-defence.)
    Where was the deputy? (Oo-oo-oh)
    I say: I shot the sheriff,
    But I swear it was in selfdefence. (Oo-oh) Yeah!

    Freedom came my way one day
    And I started out of town, yeah!
    All of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown
    Aiming to shoot me down,
    So I shot - I shot - I shot him down and I say:
    If I am guilty I will pay.

    (I shot the sheriff,)
    But I say (But I didn't shoot no deputy),
    I didn't shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
    (I shot the sheriff.) I did!
    But I didn't shoot no deputy. Oh! (Oo-oo-ooh)

    Reflexes had got the better of me
    And what is to be must be:
    Every day the bucket a-go a well,
    One day the bottom a-go drop out,
    One day the bottom a-go drop out.
    I say:

    I - I - I - I shot the sheriff.
    Lord, I didn't shot the deputy. Yeah!
    I - I (shot the sheriff) -
    But I didn't shoot no deputy, yeah! No, yeah!

    Bridge Over Troubled Water (4:55)
    P. Simon, 1969



    When you're weary, feeling small
    When tears are in your eyes,
    I will dry them all
    I'm on your side
    When times get rough
    And friends just can't be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you
    I'll take your part
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Sail on silver girl
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way
    See how they shine
    When you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind

    Imagine - John Lennon

    Imagine there's no Heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    It's Tricky RUN-D.M.C


    Intro

    This speech is my recital, I think it's very vital
    To rock (a rhyme), that's right (on time)
    It's Tricky is the title, here we go...

    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...it's Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...Tr-tr-tr-tricky (Tricky) Trrrrrrrrrrricky

    Verse 1

    I met this little girlie, her hair was kinda curly
    Went to her house and bust her out, I had to leave real early
    These girls are really sleazy, all they just say is please me
    Or spend some time and rock a rhyme, I said "It's not that easy"

    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...(How is it D?) It's Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Trrrrrricky)
    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...Tricky (Tricky) Tricky

    Verse 2

    In New York the people talk and try to make us rhyme
    They really (hawk) but we just (walk) because we have no time
    And in the city it's a pity cos we just can't hide
    Tinted windows don't mean nothin', they know who's inside

    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...(How is it D?) Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky) huh!

    Verse 3

    When I wake up people take up mostly all of my time
    I'm not singin', phone keep ringin' cos I make up a rhyme
    I'm not braggin', people naggin' cos they think I'm a star
    Always tearin' what I'm wearin', I think they're goin' too far
    A girl named Carol follows Daryll every gig we play
    Then D dissed her and dismissed her, now she's jockin' Jay
    I ain't lyin', girls be cryin' cos I'm on TV
    They even bother my poor father cos he's down with me

    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...(How is it?) Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...Tr-tr-tr-tr-tr-tricky (Tr-Tr-Tr-Tricky) Tr-tr-tr...

    Verse 4

    We are not thugs (we don't use drugs) but you assume (on your own)
    They offer coke (and lots of dope) but we just leave it alone
    It's like that y'all (y'all), but we don't quit
    You keep on (rock!) shock! Cos this is it...
